3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle; BBD: October 25th 2013) Pours an elegant, slightly hazy copper with medium, off-white head. Really good retention and lace. Aroma is initially hoppy with a slightly leafy/earthy character. There’s also a faint hint of alcohol coming through. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body and a slightly bitter and warming alcohol finish. A well balanced DIPA although I personally prefer the ones where the ABV is complemented by a more fruity hop character. I guess it’s the simcoe used for dry hopping that disappoints me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a hazy orange brown with lots of rising bubbles. The frothy off-white head lasts and creates lots of good lacing. Aroma is not as hoppy as I thought it would be. Sure, there are lots of citrus hops, but also caramel and more spices than I’ve had in an IIPA before. Mouthfeel is oily and lively (due to lots of carbonation). Body is medium to full. Taste is on the bitter side, but no where close to some of the hop bombs in this style. Alcohol is definitely present in the finish. A very enjoyable beer which I could have mistaken for a Belgian Trippel

Bottle 341 ml. Cloudy amber with a small off-white creamy head. Heavy lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Flavor is sweet and hoppy with a strong malt presence and slight pine and caramel notes. Moderate to heavy bitterness. Body is medium and mouthfeel is oily and there’s a little alcohol warmth. Nice one!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
What an odd beer - not overly hoppy, but certainly with a pronunced bitterness. Malt body is quite rich and complex for a DIPA. Tastes like there is some rye in there to go with the toffe/caramel and candi sugar. Decent bitter finish. Odd ball but highly enjoyable for it.
